Last minute shoppers are out in Rapid City - KOTA Territory News

Rapid City businesses welcome last minute shoppers


On Christmas Eves shoppers were out getting those last minute gifts. Store managers in Rapid City say they've been busy since Saturday.

Some stores still have sales to bring in those last minute shoppers. Store managers say, overall, the amount of last minute shoppers they've seen this year is about the same as last year.    

"It's not everybody at once which has been good for us. We have been able to take care of everyone a little bit easier that way, but still I would say it's an average amount of last minute shopping," said Ashley Kiefer, Assistant Merchandise Manager at Karma Boutique.

According to ShopperTrak, for the week of December 16th through December 22nd sales decreased by 3.1 percent from the same week last year. The study says the weather may have prevented people from getting to the stores.
